Jon Stickley Trio
December 30, 2018 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Clark Roberts Production presents the Jon Stickley Trio
Jon Stickley is no stranger to Salida audiences. His past performances at the former Salida Cafe include with guitarist Shannon Whitworth of the Biscuit Burners and the Colorado Playboys (with Travis Book of The Infamous Stringduster, John Frazier of Hit and Run Bluegrass Band, and Andy Thorn, Leftover Salmon). His Trio has performed for thousands of music fans at the Four Corners Folks Festival for many years.
His music today is rooted in his past of flat-picking bluegrass, but I defy you to connect the dots with what the Trio now produces. In reference to the band, it used to be easy to say things like “upbeat, blue-grassy, Gypsy jazz, folk-punk, treading into jam-band territory.” Now they are not so confined.
Jon Stickley Trio is a genre-defying and cinematic instrumental trio, whose deep grooves, innovative flat-picking, and sultry-spacey violin moves the listener’s head, heart, and feet. “The latest record from the Jon Stickley Trio flexes new and strong muscles, utilizing more progressive structures and deeper pockets than ever before,” says Producer Dave King (Of The Bad Plus). “All the while, the group retains its place as a modern-thinking acoustic ensemble with one foot in tradition and the other in a bluegrass honored future that allows for the avant garde, punk, and be bop to mix in freely and tastefully.”
A part of the Trio since its conception, Fiddler Lyndsay Pruett puts deep thought into her flowing solos, plus she adds little flourishes and sudden stops that elevate the music,” proclaims Nashville’s Music City Roots’ Craig Havighurst.
The Trio announced a change in lineup in January 2018 with new drummer, Hunter Deacon, who is both classically trained and boasts heavy jazz influences. Hunter studied with drummer Keith Brown and received a BM in Studio Music and Jazz from the University of Tennessee. Deacon then went on to complete a six-month residency at a jazz club in Hangzhou, China, where he performed seven nights a week.
